The mission of the Community Asylum Seekers Project is to cultivate a supportive community for those seeking asylum in the U.S., while offering basic needs and accompanying them on their journey towards building a life in this country.
What CASP offers:
How YOU can offer support:
Federal regulations about asylum seekers, along with COVID-19 constraints on fundraising, have created a two-fold financial challenge for CASP:
- the need for extended support of our asylum-seeking guests, who must now wait double the time – a full year – to become eligible for a work permit
- the need for renewed support for asylum-seekers who had received a work-permit two years ago and their renewal is taking longer than the 180 days USCIS promises
- the suspension of in-person fundraising events
You can help us meet this challenge by visiting our donations page – and opting for monthly support!
In response to the evolving COVID-19 situation, we are providing our volunteers, staff, and guests with state and local guidelines, in Spanish and English, about in-person contact – realizing that everyone will need to take the personal precautions that protect their healthcare needs.
